3:01 am

"fox & friends" begins right now. >> good morning, guys. >> good morning, everybody. how is the smell of fresh coffee at 6:01, my friend. >> pull up a chair, grab your coffee it, smells delicious. >> is there anything better than coffee at this time of the morning. >> breakfast. >> or sleep. >> if you can't get your kids to sleep, stick around have an important medical debate whether using mel tone anyone
3:02 am
is a good idea or dangerous. >> you have been doing this for years. >> i have going to stop doing this now. >> i haven't heard the debate yet. >> i have been caffeinated mine for years. start this morning with the recovery or is it one? the jobs numbers come out on friday morning and they were not good. they were certainly not what the obama administration wanted to see or what this country needed to see. >> let's dive into the numbers now once you have a day to digest where this has been hurting the most, these are grim statistics. 96,000 jobs added. unemployment still 8.1%. here is the real number, right? it's 368,000 people that stopped looking for work all together. >> yeah. and in almost every sector was hard hit. manufacturing, which people had hoped was having a come back, they lost jobs. construction? a slump. state and local governments still shed some jobs. i think it was only the health industry that may have added.
3:03 am
>> and banks. >> financial services and health industry. you glossed over that 8.1% unemployment number. i think that's important to go back. >> because it's meaningless is probably why. >> that's right. because now in the light of day, we know that it's meaningless. however, at first blush, people said that's great, the number went down from 8.3. only because 368,000 left the job force. >> right. so you have a 4 to 1 ratio in terms of jobs being created to people leaving the workforce. and manufacturing number is also a big one as you said. the president had just talked about creating a million manufacturing jobs over the next four years and then we see the number go down for the first time in a year. >> we looked at housing and construction. manufacturing numbers. so cutting 15,000, that's the first time that we have seen cutting of 15,000 jobs. mitt romney out on the campaign trail said if you look at this in any direction. any way you slice it the country is headed in the wrong
3:04 am
direction he says. >> for every net new job created, about four people dropped out of workforce. so we're going in the wrong direction. this is a very difficult time for the american people. and by the way wages are also not rising. no increase in wages. declining wages, actually. declining number of people being able to find work, people dropping out of the workforce, it's another continuation of a very bleak news on the employment front. >> that was, of course, part of an exclusive sit down with bret baier for "special report." the hangover comment we referred to earlier is something he did say in fact on the campaign trail. he said the party is over. now those jobs numbers are the hangover. >> the obama administration had a different interpretation of the numbers of the chairman on the council of economic numbers alan krueger came out and gay interviews yesterday morning later roundly tone deaf. here is his response.
3:05 am
>> it's not just one because now it's 43 condition seq.ive months of unemployment numbers above 8%. not just one report. and if you will, these jobs numbers, about 96,000 jobs being added, that seems like such a paltry number. even president obama then back in 2004, a senator from illinois, criticizing president bush for these sort of stagnant numbers and see if the numbers conflate. listen. >> >> past few weeks president bush and members of his administration have traveled the nation to celebrate recent improved economic sta tis it particulars, well, i have been traveling too. all over this large and diverse state in cities and suburbs, downstate and upstate i have heard from people who say it's way too early to declare victory economy. after three dismal years of
3:06 am
job loss we all welcome encouraging statistics. by most americans wealth is measured in a different way. if i lose my job, where will i find a that one that plays as well and offers real benefits. >> 3,300,000 he was criticizing. >> you need about 150 jus stay above water. >> we would take 300,000 any week. >> how much more on this because the fed is a big move that could come in week from the fed. we will dive into that later in the show which could plan to hold and actually buy back and try continue to fuse the housing market this week. and that would be. >> stocks went up. that tells you they think there is fed action on the way. >> they think they need to otherwise we could slip into a recession by december if they do not take action. december, holiday time and a recession again? that's something we don't want to hear about. >> that is scary stuff.
3:07 am
>> yeah. meanwhile a fox news alert. an arrest has been made in the killing of u.s. border patrol agent brian terry in the botched fast and furious gun running operation. >> peter doocy is live in washington with more details. what do we know, peter? >> alli, we know that authorities in mexico say they have jesus san us is in custody he was arrested in senor are a state down in mexico. one of the five men charged with the murder of border patrol agent brian terry in arizona back in december 2010 he is one of five suspects. three of the five men all from mexico are still on the loose. they have been for months. this all goes back to the gun fight between these men and border patrol agents nearly two full years ago in arizona near our southern border with mexico. the five men plus one crossed
3:08 am
the border into arizona to rob marijuana smugglers. their plan was foiled by border patrol agents that engaged them and the shootout that followed. brian terry was killed and two of the guns left hipsd by his killers were traced back to smuggling ring at the center of the u.s. department sting called fast and furious. buy guns in the united states and let them walk across the southern border but authorities in the u.s. quickly lost track of many of the guns and at least two of them turned up at the scene of agent terry's heard. there are still hearings on capitol hill about this schedule as congressional investigators try to figure out who is to blame here on our end for the failure of operation fast and furious. as for the man who was arrested yesterday, we don't know if he is the man that authorities actually think shot agent terry because authorities so far have been

3:16 am
christian -- admission records. one staff with the university of alabama saying holmes would be a, quote, leader in the future. this email from the neuroscience program director at the university of iowa. look at this. james holmes do not offer admission under any circumstances. how important are these documents and will they help or hurt the case against holmes nice to see both of you this morning. >> good to see you. two documents seems like conflicting reports. can fast particular grade point average. >> he graduated high honors. got an a in ethics and human life. come on. a pluses in everything else. and he was applying for a neuroscience degree. a ph.d. degree in which he was then rejected from the university of alabama. >> these documents admitted into evidence. any suggestion they will be used and can they actually hurt him?
3:17 am
some of these documents say do not admit him under any circumstances and he was difficult to engage with. >> his defense attorneys are fighting hard to keep these out. i think they are going to lose and i do think these documents will hurt him. his psychiatric may not but these will. he is so smart. we don't normally associate really smart people with not knowing the difference between right and wrong. >> that's the legal it test. >> if he knew the difference between right and wrong his legal insanity defense is done. >> how do you play that in court? >> as a prosecution i bring that in. i love these documents. yes, maybe he had some trouble in the past and yes he was denied admission for a neuroscience ph.d. program. the guy graduated with high honors. he got straight a's. the legal test is do you know the difference between right and wrong. defense is going to say he was deranged, out of his mind. class a student going for a ph.d. couldn't be so far out of his mind. >> yeah, the defense here, say something like this that says
3:18 am
this guy was difficult to engage with. how much of an interaction do you have with an admissions person. you are in there maybe 20 minutes having a conversation in that amount of time they find you difficult to engage with? that's got to be troubling. >> he has a history of quote extreme mental illness. god only knows how he presented in front of these admission personell. he was on the downward spiral by the time he did this terrible thing did he not note difference between right and wrong. >> the facts beyond these records belie that. when he was arrested he said to law enforcement do not go into my apartment. why not go into my apartment? because they booby trapped the apartment. he knew if people went into that apartment they would be blown to smithereens. >> doesn't it show that he is conflicted? on the one hand he wanted to hurt people so he is setting up booby traps. >> that's not the legal test. >> then tell police not to go in there. >> not the legal test.
3:19 am
this is a what if. if he walked into that movie theater and he thought he was shooting up some sort of weird enemy, to him that would have not been wrong and that could get him under the legal. >> that kind of defense. so he went through, you know, undergraduate degree with high honors shooting people up all the time or in that deranged status? i don't thinki don't think so. somewhere the professor would have seen this guy is not all right in the head. >> what's next for the legal teams on all sides here. >> they will be discovering on the discovery documents coming. in he will be analyzed and you have got to believe they are going to find a psychiatrist. >> he had to. >> he didn't know right from wrong at the time because that is all they h we know he did it there is no question about that. it's about his mental status at that time. >> we're still waiting to see if the infamous notebook is going to come in. >> interesting. we have you back to discuss this. that is fascinating. good to see both of you. thank you so much. coming up on the show, the

3:23 am
>> the obama administration tried to tout the august jobs report as a success. >> today we learned that after losing around 800,000 jobs a month when i took office. business once again added jobs
3:24 am
for the 30th month in a row. a total of more than 4.6 million jobs. >> even though the unemployment rate did drop to 8.1% next month, our next guest says it's because hundreds of thousands of people stopped looking for work and they're no longer counted in that tally. >> economist and professor of international business at the university of maryland, peter morici joins us this morning. good to see you, sir. >> good morning. >> we have got 368,000 people leaving the workforce, that's about a four to one ratio to the jobs created. now, there are an enormous amount of baby boomers entering or nearing the retirement age. is that why we are seeing so many leave the workforce? is there something more to it? >> absolutely not. in fact, based unemployment data on folks between the ages of 16 and 65 folks reaching retirement age have no bearing on these numbers. what you have got is people very discouraged in late 50s and people young in life who basically, you know, borrow money and go to graduate
3:25 am
school and get a degree in social work or something while they wait for the job market to get better. >> peter, you are an economist. let's be problem-solvers this morning so that people can cling to some sort of optimism. you say you have an idea get it down to 5% unemployment. the first thing you say is produce more domestic oil. >> absolutely. we could cut our oil imports in half from 8 million barrels a day to four. that would create 2.5 million jobs. just by drilling where we know there is oil. on the gulf, off the two coasts and north slope of alaska. mr. obama essentially shut down. also, finally doing something about the huge trade deficit with china and it's chiseling on trade, currency, subsidies, tariffs and all the rest that would be good for another two and a half million jobs. just cutting those two in half would give you 5 million jobs. >> two counters to that one, the obama administration would push back and say oil imports
3:26 am
are down very far from recent years. also in regards to punishing china, some fear that the harder you push back on china. maybe they stop buying our debt. we all know that would be a disaster. >> two big questions with regard to oil, he has essentially allowed on shore drilling. we could easily increase production from about 6 million barrels a day to 10 million barrels a day by producing off our coast. by the way. importing oil doesn't lower the oceans. we still burn the same amount of gasoline. we just send the money to unfriendly people that don't like us. with regard to china, so they don't buy our debt. essentially, when the chinese get these trade surpluses they get dollars. and they trade those dollars in for bonds. if they didn't trade those dollars in for bonds they go into circulation and sent in the vault of their central bank. they could -- which central bank business the bonds. it's a wash.
3:27 am
the chinese don't have any leverage on us. except the leverage in mr. obama's mind. he promised to do something about this when he was running for president but his foreign policy so far has consisted of quite correctly apologies around the world except china where it's a kneeling pad. >> you think we should relax burdensome business regulations such as? >> dodd frank, for example, it's forcing a lot of small banks out of business. they are selling out to the big wall street banks which frankly are not much interested in lending money on main street because they don't understand it. lending money to small businesses still comes down to knowing the borrower, knowing whether they will will be inclined to pay. that small bank in toledo is much better qualified. with the obama dodd frank those banks simply find the burden of regulation more than they can handle. the volume of loans don't cover the overhead. >> and also you say healthcare mandates and costs clearly that is the goal of the romney
3:28 am
camp if they are elected to get -- thanks for being here. we appreciate it. >> take care. coming up adults take it to help them fall asleep but now more and more parents are giving melatonin to their kids. is this a good idea? we have made call debate coming up. >> one couple apologizing in advance, to passengers on board their flight just in case these two cuties decided to cry. we'll tell you about their proactive sweet approach. >> look at the little guy on the right. is he happy. we have big dreams.

kind of thing. and then when it comes to israel, it's very very deeply, deeply troubling. because there is now such a furious anti-israeli core in the democratic base, the extreme base of the democratic party that israel should be very very worried. and right now, israel -- prime minister netanyahu of israel just got in a huge fight with the american hack ambassador dan shapiro because the israelis are facing existential threat. they are afriday they will be wiped off the map if iran gets nuclear weapons. for the obama administration they this is a problem they wish would go away. >> obama administration has given away millions of darr's to the iron dome defense system to help protect jewelers. he has described his support for israel as, quote, not negotiable. concrete things that the obama administration has done. what have they done that you
3:46 am
say conflicts with that not negotiable support of israel. what have they done? >> former intel officer. you really listen to what's unsaid. look at what's not done he we get a lot of benefits working cooperatively with the israelis on antimissile systems, et cetera. that's cheap relatively speaking. what's expensive, what's risky, what's politically tough is the kind of support israel needs to survive. and what the israelis need is for the u.s. to finally establish red lines. for president obama to man up for just once and say if iran crosses this thrern hold we -- threshold we would act with israel or independently to stop nuclear program including using military force. again, for washington, for this administration, israel is a bother. he they just wish it would go
3:47 am
away. they don't want israelis to go away. stop annoying them so they can get on with peace and love, middle east hamas is wonderful agenda. whereas for the israelis again, this is about survival. and if president obama is reelected, he will turn his back on israel 100%, israel will be on its own. if he is rereelected, you will see the obama shaped by anti-zionist, anti-jewish, out of chicago, the reverend wright's church. article of faith for the last two generations among the american left and the world left that israel is evil. israel is bad. it relates right to their view of united states. why do they hate israel? israel is successful. they hate businessmen here who are successful. if you are successful, as an individual or a country, the democrats think you stole it all, you cheated. you are bad. >> i should point out the latest gallup polls conflict

3:53 am
with you. you called this lazy parenting. what are parents supposed to do if their kids can't sleep? >> how about comforting your kids? how about teaching them to deal with the fact that it's sometimes takes self-soothing to get to sleep this is convenience parenting. putting your kids to sleep with drugs, with a hormone the body produces. sometimes on a nightly basis. isn't it convenient alisyn? doesn't it fit in it with our increasingly technical convenience oriented society that you turn your kids on with ritalin and turn them off with melatonin. not in my house. >> dr. green, you are a pediatrician, i assume you hear parents say they feel comfortable with melatonin because the sense is it is all natural. >> do i hear that powerful hormone. and i'm a fan of using melatonin to help fans fall asleep. the melatonin kids make themselves not the melatonin as a supplement. >> produce more of it.
3:54 am
>> melatonin is produced when it gets really really dark. because we have lights on and electronics on and the hours before dead, they don't make the melatonin they should be to help fall asleep naturally. i agree you don't want to medicate them to get them to fall asleep. instead turn down the lights or put on blue blocker. mel tone anyone pluments as soon as blue light is in their life. >> some adults have sleeping problems. does this mean something biological is going wrong with kids and adults or is there something psychological? >> adults who have sleep problems, i think dr. green, pediatrician has his finger on the pulse of this problem. you know, we stimulate ourselves. we overstimulate ourselves. we remove ourselves from these natural rhythms. listen, if you have your cell phone next to your bed. if you are using your bed to look at ipad every night. your bed is no longer a place refuge and relaxation.
3:55 am
of course people have sleep problems. in this culture we have created. depression is skyrocketing. depression, one of the cardinal stomtion is -- symptoms is insome i can't. what other diagnoses might need to be identified in order to bring insomnia under control. using melatonin for your kids not a good idea. >> dr. green, it is so stressful to parents when their kids won't sleep. i remember not in the distant past when i had new babies and they wouldn't sleep and then you as a parent, you are up all night and you are getting more and more crazy and you are getting more and more depressed as your kids won't sleep. is it okay to ever use melatonin to get over the hump. >> well, for normal parenting i really do recommend teaching good sleep habits. that's an important thing to do. there are some kids in some situations where some kind of supplement or extra help can be useful. especially kids who can't make enough melatonin like some kids with autism.
3:56 am
>> in other words, a child would have to be diagnosed in a doctor's office and then -- >> -- that's exactly, yes, i would work with a sleep specialist before giving melatonin because there is often simple things can you do to make a big difference in sleep. >> got it it last word, dr. ablow, you think that occasionally it can be used or just to avoid it? >> listen, i guess you could use benadryl occasionally if you had to, but didn't we criticize casey anthony for this idea we said oh, she is drugging her kid to put the kid to sleep this must mean that she is a dangerous mom. it's not a good idea. melatonin can interfehr with growth. cause lower seizure threshold. precipitating seizures. don't mess with it. >> thanks so much for the informative segment. i'm sure that helped patience, thank you. >> thanks, alisyn. >> still to come, a student opens fire inside a crowded classroom how one teacher's actions saved others from getting hurt. we have that story for you at the touch of the hour.

"fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >> good morning, everybody. thanks to so much for joining us early this saturday
4:01 am
morning. great to have you. so yesterday these new jobs numbers came out. and when i will the unemployment rate dropped from 8.3 to 8.1 which of course first blush sounds like good, sounds promising. >> it's like -- wah-wa. >> wow. >> it turns out it wasn't good because only 96,000 jobs were added and 368,000 people stopped looking for work they dropped out of the workforce that's the real number right there 368,000. across all sectors of the economy really only area that saw any kind of uptick was the financial services sector banks and little bit in healthcare. 15,000 in manufacturing is a real shot in the arm. manufacturing was one of those areas where it was a glimmer of hope. it was coming back. now losing 15,000 jobs there. >> worst number that sector saw in a year. and when you look at all of this, we talk about things like the labor participation%. you get lost in that. fewer people working. that number is at a 30 year
4:02 am
low if the labor force hadn't changed since obama took office the unemployment rate would be 11.2%. some people have left the workforce given up saying i'm done. that's the reason this number is trickling down. is it baked into the polls? we haven't seen the polls rise and fall with the jobs numbers. >> one of the issues is that n. a lot of the battleground states ohio and others have had stronger employment numbers than they had for the national average. ohio doing better than some of the national numbers. it's interesting if you look at the way the obama administration trying to spin it this morning. allen krueger the chairman of the chick advisories ha this to say. as the administration stresses every month. monthly employment and unemployment figures can be volatile and employment estimates can be subject to substantial revision. therefore, it's important not to read too much into any one monthly report. you should keep in mind this is 43 months now where this has been above 8 percentage
4:03 am
points in unemployment. >> that response wasn't exactly excepting the way some people thought that it should in terms of the dire situation where there doesn't appear to be taurian around at the moment of the jobs numbers. so, president obama had his own interpretation of why the jobs numbers are so bad. i will just use that word. he says that it is the obstructionism of the republicans. >> if the republicans are serious about being concerned about joblessness, we could create a million new jobs right now. if congress would pass the jobs plan that i sent to them a year ago. jobs for teachers, jobs for construction workers. jobs for folks who have been looking for work for a long time. we can do that. >> saying congress, hey, i handed you this jobs bill a year ago, you still haven't
4:04 am
passed it that didn't sit well with mitt romney number didn't sit well with romney. take a listen. >> every new job created. four people dropped out of workforce. so we're going in the wrong direction. this is a very difficult time for the american people and by the way, wages are also not rising, so, no increase in wages, declining wages actually. declining number of people being able to find work. people dropping out of workforce. it's another continuation of a very bleak news on the employment front. >> we learned those jobs numbers on friday. the president learned them on thursday night. don't know if it was before or after the speech. given the tone of that speech you wonder if he got those numbers before the speech. toned it down. realizing hay, these are not numbers to run out and celebrate. >> right, some supreme speculated lack of the rousing -- >> the direction we are headed in. >> meanwhile, let's get to your headlines a lot more news to tell you about, including a fox news alert right now. there has been a deadly attack

4:08 am
than we saw yesterday to give you an idea of how that is you see these storms back here. they were much worse last night and now during the overnight hours they weaken a little bit. they don't have that heating we get during the day. as the day heats up, this air mass here across the east coast feels very tropical and muggy and summer-like. fall like temperatures behind it that's going to spawn some very severe weather. right here where you see that red is moderate risk. we potentially have good chance to he see tornadoes and wind damage across a very populated area this afternoon, guys? >> thanks so much, rick. >> you bet. >> coming up on the show he was turned down by nasa 12 times before becoming first mexican american astronauts to be launched into space. inspiring story of jose hernandez next. >> solyndra got more than 500 million bucks of your taxpayer dollars then went bankrupt. now a judge wants to clear the way for tax breaks for solyndra supporters. how the government is planning to fight back.

4:13 am
area unemployment more than twice the national rate, yet, no one was doing anything about it. and so i figured now is the time for me to get involved and do something about it because what scashed me the most is the parents were losing faith that their kids could reach the american dream. >> your hometown is stockton, california, by the way the largest city in the u.s. to file for bankruptcy protection. one of their biggest problems is the money they owe to public emilyee unions, that's their biggest creditor, how does a democrat come in and reach across and say we need to make some tough sacrifices to get this city back on track. >> what needs to be happening is, you know, my platform is on four major issues. it's jobs, jobs, jobs. and education. we need to do things to create jobs to diversify the economy there in the central valley and bring high tech sector jobs from across silicone valley instead of having them exported to china, korea or other countries. >> and the book specifically for the most part stays out of politics. it talks about your story as a
4:14 am
young man spending three months a year in mexico, nine months in california. back and forth different school districts. it talks about the importance of education in a young person's life. >> exactly. it wasn't until my second grade teacher mrs. young came to our house and basically compared us four kids to my father in terms he could understand. look a at your kids as trees. what happens when you continually transplant them? you stunt their growth and the roots never take place. you need to stay in one place. nurture the tree so that the roots get a hold, grow deep and the tree grows big and strong. that's why we ended up making our lives there near stockton. >> the other message that should resonate is one of perseverance. you talked about the fact that you applied to be an astronaut 12 times. why did you not give up? today it seems people give up so easily on dreams and goals.
4:15 am
12 times. why? what kept you going? >> because the career i selected was con session tent with wanting to be an astronaut which is wanting to be an engineer. the decisions i was taking navigating professional career to become better candidate for astronaut was helping my professional career as an engineer. the worst thing that could have happened if i didn't get selected i would have had a heck of a career as an engineer. i was doing the right things for the right reasons and enjoying the journey. that's what i tell the kids most important don't look at final goal. enjoy the your journey along the way. i certainly was. >> you how difficult is it for you seeing hitching a ride russians. nasa program as you came to know it is no longer. how difficult is that for you? >> it's tough to swallow, dave. one of the things that i'm going to make a commitment for is i'm going to be one of the biggest fans of nasa when i'm in congress. i'm going to make sure that the united states invests in

have you been unemployed for six years and six years, the last job that you had you were one of the -- you ran one of the largest data centers for at&t. >> correct. >> what have these six years of unemployment been like for you? >> terrible. to some -- to sum that up. for a period of time i did stop looking. i have resumed my search. so actually, i don't believe i'm part of that 8.1%. i'm lumped in to the limbo category where those 368,000 were just deposited. >> yeah, because they say those 368,000 have just given up looking but that's -- i don't understand how they can say that. did you ever give up looking? was there a time that you just simply gave up or you have always been looking? >> there was a period where i was exasperated and stopped looking. economic necessity didn't allow me that convenience of not looking. so i have had to resume my search. >> you were on unemployment benefits but those have run out?
4:46 am
>> yes, ma'am. >> what has life been like for six years and what do you tell your five children about this? >> i tell them i'm sorry. high life has been not rosy. i have worked for almost 35 years prior to this experience. in the 90's i even went back to school to receive more microsoft certifications to assist my job search, which was successful because i was hired by at&t. >> but then you lost your job six years ago. >> correct, correct. >> you are back pounding the pavement now and looking for a job. what's that like? >> that's very difficult because of the level i'm at. executive level. the want ads basically read only road scholar triathlon athletes need apply. the employers do know that there is an extensive pool of people out there to fill positions. so they have made their requirements that much more strict. and that much more difficult.

4:53 am
roads and bridges and schools and run ways. >> katy, taking more -- war money and using using it to payn other things, false why? >> couple problems with that first of all the wars have been financed with largely borrowed money. 700 to $800 billion in spending never requested and that nobody expects to be spent anyway. wars are winding down. this sort of thing has been used before and discredited. this is actually what paul ryan was talking about this time last year during the debt ceiling debate when he made that speech when he said why don't we just pass a bill saying let's spend $5 trillion to cover the moon with yogurt and then tomorrow we will cancel it and, hey, we saved $5 trillion. so, it's definitely not something that could even pass the house much less -- >> you can't paint the moon with yogurt. i'm going to dispel that notion right now.
4:54 am
many people katie watts, here is what the president said in response to that. >> we can help big factories and small businesses double their exports. if we choose this path, we can create a million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> so the problem with this. [ buzzer ] >> the problem with this one is there are a couple. first of all, he has been promising that for about a year and a half now. he hasn't actually specified, you know, how he would create these jobs. since february 2010, when the economy started turning around there had been about 500,000 manufacturing jobs added to the economy. that's something that obama has been saying on the campaign trail. but even with that increase. we're still operating at a net loss of about 580,000
4:55 am
manufacturing jobs over the course of his tenure. and manufacturing has been in decline for 20 years or so. pretty consistently. unclear how he would turn that around. >> as for future promises there is some potential at least. fact checker said president obama if elected could create 12 million jobs in four years. future promises are hard to fact check. >> economists playing with those numbers. here is another one from the president the other night. shorter one. take a listen whether it's fact or fiction listen. >> independent experts say my plan would cut our deficit by $4 trillion. >> cutting of $4 trillion, you say is. [ buzzer ] >> false. he has been criticized for increasing the deficit by 6 trillion. why is that false? >> so the number takes account the 1 trillion in savings that was already passed into law with the debt ceiling deal last summer. there is another 800 billion or so that's actually just debt interest payments so it's
4:56 am
sort of dubious to claim those as savings when, i don't know, it's kind of double counting in a way. and then another 800 billion is from the phantom war savings. another issue to keep in mind, too. a lot of this has to do with the measuring stick you are using. the cbo when they measured obama's latest budget they found it would increase the budget pretty significantly. in any case 10 years from now under obama's plan, national debt would be 76.5% of g.d.p. and current little it's 74.2%. >> there you go. looking at the numbers from the speeches. it's always fun to jump in and now especially when we have this information at our finger tips we can do. this katy o'donnell from the national journal, thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> still ahead actor chuck norris issuing a dire warning for america. >> country as we know it may be lost forever. >> he joins us with the explanation. >> and we telling you about a georgia school district banning prayers before

5:03 am
know about the jobs number that even some of the sectors that had looked like they were coming back to life and returning manufacturing, construction, some of the state jobs even those have seen now slippage and that only the financial services industry and the health industry saw a few jobs added. this is not what the president needed to hear. >> right. in particular, you mentioned the manufacturing. the president just talked about creating a million manufacturing jobs and then we get the worse numbers for that sector in about a year. and the amount of americans working at this point a 30-year low. if the workforce stayed what it was when the president took office, we would be looking at unemployment rate north of 11%. >> and one of the big issues is that this is 43 continuous months of unemployment above 8%. and when you look at what the fed may do this week, which is to keep interest rates near zero to infuse the housing markets because what they are seeing is if we don't do something, we could slip back
5:04 am
into a recession by december and that is exactly what mitt romney was talking about yesterday. take a listen. >> >> for every net new job created, about four people dropped out of the workforce, so we're going in the wrong direction. this is a very difficult time for the american people. and by the way, wages are also not rising. so, no uncrease in wages. declining wages, actually. declining number of people being able to find work. people dropping out of the workforce. it's another continuation of a very bleak news on the employment front. >> so if you are the obama administration, how do you play this? and it seemed like the strategy was to down play it it the quote from his chairman of the council of economic advisors, guy named allen krueger. he had this to say as the administration stresses every month, the monthly employment and unemployment figures can be volatile and employment estimates can be subject to substantial revision it is important not to read too much into any monthly report.

years is fix america's policies. you can take just about any american policy and look at it and it would be indefensible. two country trays that have a higher tax: everybody else lower rates. that's why everybody is locating the jobs overseas. we have marv deficits. people don't know what's going to happen to the economy. have a tax increase or recession because we get a financial crisis because of the big deficits. governor romney gets out ahead of those things i wrote a paper with a few colleagues available on the mitt rom guess what it's pretty darn easy. >> will tax cuts and spending cuts thereby lowering our deficit, will that coupled together help get the economy booming in terms of our -- >> yeah, it absolutely will. we have got an enormous amount of pent up growth get a new administration in there to fix
5:23 am
the policies. you went through the numbers for the jobs report. when president obama was elected about 63% of americans had a job. right now it's about 58% of americans. that 5% difference is almost exactly 12 million. if governor romney's plan is passed, then what we basically do is get back to where we should have been all along. >> one of the criticisms of romney's plan is that while saying we want to lower overall rates, not answering the question, what deductions and write-offs will reremove. do you have any insight what the romney's plans are in terms of deductions? what would they get rid of it? >> if you go back and look at the 1986 tax. one of the big success for tax policies. governor romney studied it and what happened democratic leaders and republic leaders, ronald reagan bill bradley and dan, they got in a room and they just looked at all the things that were making the tax bales narrow and negotiated which things that they were going to take away
5:24 am
or limit in order to get lower tax rates. they got the marginal tax rate all the way down to 28%. i think that's the process that governor romney wants to pursue. president obama is all about making excuses. you know, oh, gosh, the economy would be great except that the republicans are making it so i can't do anything. if you go back and look successful presidents like ronald reagan and even bill clinton they worked with the guys on the other side. what governor romney doesn't want to do is put lines on the sand tricky political issues he is committed to passing next year. >> romney talked about allot about working with the other side in his speech. the president did not. >> right. >> will mitt romney work with the other side. >> absolutely. governor romney is a berne who gets things done. in washington you cannot get things done if you are demonizing the other side all the time. so, you know, i think that the big mistake though that president obama is making that his team is making is they have decided they can't run on their record. they don't even actually have a plan. talked about my plan. i don't know what his plan is

unless it's the budget he has been trying to pass for the last four years got no votes in congress. run on policies and work with the other guys to pass them. what president obama wants to do is demon nice governor romney. the fact is governor romney is about the most decent normal person in america. running a campaign on spreading disinformation on what a demon he is. it can't possibly work. you can demonize me. with governor romney it doesn't make sense. >> you can demonize me plenty of material there. thank you. >> >> democrats still dealing with the fallout of taking god and jerusalem out of the party's platform before putting it back in. >> all those delegates in favor say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >>. no. >> in the opinion of the chair, two thirds have voted in the anirmive, the motion is adopted. and the platform has been amended as shown on the screen.

5:37 am
complicated. >> it's complicated but here is the thing. the idea that was some oversight, that's nonsense. there are people who go to these platform meetings and they pars every comma, every apostrophe, every word in that document. >> that's interesting. because i had heard that it was the opposite, that it must have been some low level guy. john boehner came out and said nobody even reads these party platforms. wasn't one guy sitting there one night with an eraser. thought out, well parsed and calculated. >> i have never been a part of anything like that where it wasn't carefully thought through. true there may be people like congressman and others who give a cursory reading they probably don't pay attention to it. but the people who get on that committee typically are people who are just -- i mean they are absolutely eagle eye focused on it because there are certain things want to make sure either get in or get out. even when you see the changes, you get a word document particular pickly with a strike through so you know
5:38 am
what's been taken out. the idea that this just sort of happened. i find that more difficult to believe than i do that the vote actually passed by two thirds. >> well then in broadest context though it was put back. in what does it mean that those two words were taken out. >> it was a total blunder they lost a day of their convention because they got totally distracted. >> what does it mean philosophically about the party. >> it means they are totally out of touch with most of america. their whole convention if you thought about it four hours every night. first three hours were pitched hard left. you would think that listening to it was all a celebration of abortion and contraceptives that was the number one thing that women at home were sitting around thinking about. honey, i sure hope can i get abortion and free contraceptives when i think most women are like most americans anywhere they are concerned about jobs, decent education for their children. a safe park for their kids to play in and hope and future that they will be able to go to school and have a career and a future. >> a the loft speeches maybe made up for the lack of god in the actual party platform

5:40 am
listen to the president. we will get you to respond. >> if the republicans are serious about being concerned about joblessness, we could create a million new jobs right now if congress would pass the jobs plan that i sent to them a year ago. [cheers] >> jobs for teachers, jobs for construction workers, jobs for people who have been looking for work for a long time. we can do that. >> we can do that? >> well, first of all, the federal government doesn't hire teachers. where do teachers get hired? local school boards. education is a local function, not a federal function. it is not the job of the federal government to hire teachers. the other question is do you hire teachers because you want to make jobs or do you hire teachers because you have more kids in the classroom than you had last year. that's a nonsensical kind of approach to job creation. let's make some work and go into more debt to do it. what we need to is create the kind of jobs where people can afford to go into business and people who have businesses can add on extra people. if you are not selling more product and moving more
5:41 am
product and building more product you don't hire more people. it's real simple. this ain't rocket science, this is pretty simple stuff, but the president continues to think that it's something that government has to create some jobs. this number, a million jobs he is going to create? where does he get this stuff. out of the thin blue air. >> hopefully things are getting better, whoever is elected. the governor is sticking around. he is going to add doctor to his title as well. >> i got my stethoscope. >> adults take it to help them fall asleep. now more and more parents are giving melatonin to their kids. is this safe or is it lazy parenting? he is indeed a parent. he will weigh in on that. >> and grandparent, right? >> oh yeah. >> immigration law moving forward. some say it will create more legal hurdles or next guest disagrees. >> remember the movie rudy? odds to get into notre dame to play football. the the real rudy is here.

5:46 am
they are kids, they are not going to do that. >> this resonates with your father's day message about spending quantity of time rather than quality time with your kids. have we gotten lazy where we just think we can squeeze in a certain amount of time with kids nowadays in between and hand them a gadget or this and that to kind of occupy them while we are doing something else. >> there is no such thing as parenthood by appointment. i'm going to have a magic hour between 2:00 and 3:00 this afternoon. it doesn't work like that. kids will have their own schedules of relating to something. the best definition i ever heard was that love is spelled t-i-m-e. if you want to build a relationship with your kid spend time with them. it's not quality it's quantity. that results in quality. >> another story we have been talking about this morning is a couple who is flying on a cross-country flight from california to the east coast. they were afraid that their 14 month old kids on first flight were going to cry and upset the flight.
5:47 am
they filled up goody bags full of candy and a note apologizing in advance in case these kids cried throughout the flight is it a good tactic. >> i thought it was a delightful and gracious thing. i fly several days a week. i don't so much mind babies crying because they are babies. sometimes it's an ear thing. sometimes they are scared, they are fussy. they are babies for heaven's sake. you know what bugs me? i wish people would put a sock in the mouth of people in cell phone 120-decibels and out do the jet engines and wanted to chat the entire flight to a bunch of people during the flight who don't want to hear it let the kids scream shut the adults up. that would be a better thing. >> how does governor huckabee handle unruly adult. can't? >> or do you swat them? >> that's a great idea, alisyn, i think i will try that next time. >> paper. air marshalls excourting me off the flight. >> if you don't stop touching

5:53 am
>> you know the criticisms now that most of this law has been struck down controversial portion of course is being upheld that racial profiling will unfold as a result of this. just to clarify one part. only three provisions were struck down. the law has about 10 provisions in it. only a subpart of the law went to the supreme court. but to your question about racial profiling. there is a common misconception out there that this law creates some kind of new procedure. all that this portion of the law does is make mandatory what was once discretionary. it just says previously police officers had the discretion to decide whether they wanted to pick up the phone in their patrol car and call ice to do a status check on a particular person. now it's mandatory if they have reasonable suspicion. and, so, to give you an idea of how much this has already been going on. every year there have been over a million of these status checks by federal, state and local law enforcement officers. it's about 2700 checks a day on average. so if there were going to be
5:54 am
racial profiling it would have been already happening for the past 15 years. it hasn't been happening. that's why this is a very false and hollow argument. >> here is a little bit of information about how 1070 actually protects immigrants as it says officers cannot engage in racial profiling to determine who they stop and ask for papers. a person is to presume to have lawful status if they present a valid arizona driver's license or similar i.d. a person's civil rights cannot be violated. those are the provisions in this. though you know what the left says and some predict that this is already happening. and they are saying that there is no way to really check this. what do you say to that? >> a couple of things as you noted the arizona law expressly prohibits racial profiling. if he would engage in racial profiling he would be breaking the arizona law. i think some of these critics are grasping at straws looking for some argument. really the argument they are making shows they don't trust the police officers. they don't believe that police officers can engage in their
5:55 am
law enforcement activities without racially fro filing. and i think that's a real kind of a horrible argument to make, a disservice to our men and women in blue glad you brought up the police officers. this provision exists. are they stepping into some sort of legal mind field as they wonder how they can actually deal with people they have to pull over they sense the person is doing something illegal if they worrying about if they can actually arrest this person? >> it's a very easy question as to whom they can call. since the mid 90's the federal government has set up the law enforcement support center based in vermont. any officer anywhere in america can pick up the phone and call and get an immediate answer or very quick answer on whether a particular person is legally in the country or illegally in the country. and the courts have already sort of drawn a course through this mind -- mine field.
5:56 am
person has no identification with him whatsoever. maybe is he traveling with a companion who admits that he is an illegal alien. maybe he is acting evasively. when the officer asks him questions. those are things the courts have already acknowledged yes police officers can rely on these things. >> chris to be clear you do not think these officers are entering a legal mine field. >> yes. >> they have standards and navigate this pretty easily. >> exactly. the way to put it it's not a mind field because the courts have charted the route they should take when they try to determine if someone is unlawfully present in the united states. >> great information this morning, chris. we appreciate you joining us. chris cobach the author of the arizona immigration law currently facing this controversy as we discuss it continually here on "fox & friends." chris, thanks so much. >> my pleasure. thank you. >> keep us up to date on that. still to come, a student opens fire inside a crowded classroom. how one teacher's actions saved others from getting hurt. that story at the top of the

[♪...] >> we have a fox news alert for you because an arrest has been made in the killing of u.s. border patrol agent robert terry. and peter doocy is live with more details. hi, the peter. >> reporter: charged with the murder of former patrol agent brian terry. and one was arrested thursday in mexico according to mexican authorities. they won't say if they think the man they apprehended on thursday, jesus sanchez mesa was the man who actually pulled the trigger on the gun that killed agent terry, but he's still charged with the murder we know from some
6:01 am
documents that became unsealed in july and authorities suspect mr. mesa among a group of mexican criminals who crossed the border into arizona to rob some drug smugglers in 2010, but they were spotted by u.s. border patrol agents who engaged them and in the shootout that followed. agent terry was murdered and the suspects got away at the time, but not with all of their weapons and two of the weapons left behind at the scene of the crime were later traced back to operation fast and furious and united states justice department investigation that was supposed to track guns by letting bad guys buy them in the u.s. and then just walk across the southern border with the gun. but authorities lost track of many of the weapons, congressional investigators here in washington have been trying to figure out who at the doj is responsible for allowing the murderers to get back into mexico with guns purchased here in the states. there's actually going to be another hearing on capitol
6:02 am
hill on tuesday of this week. so, we'll have to see now how the arrest of sanchez made them. and alisyn. >> alisyn: peter, thank you so much for sounding on that breaking news. more to your headlines. the government watch dog group calling for an investigation into claims that two senior f.a.a. officials urged employees to vote for president obama. the cause of action says at a meeting in may, the officials told employees that republicans win the election and the f.a.a. budget would be cut. if democrats took control of congress, the budget would remain the same. and the employees complained the message seemed if they didn't vote for a democrat they would lose their job. f.a.a. says they will cooperate with any review. a san francisco man leads a man on a boat chase, after allegedly abducting his own two children, and they say they took his two-year-old son and three-year-old daughter
6:03 am
from their mother's home. and he then stole a sail boat and jetted off with the kids and until he surrendered and the family is believed to hear the kids were not armed. >> no, this, this is the-- and letting them go-- >> the children were checked out by medical crews back on shore and reunited with their mom. and tackling a gunman at an illinois high school. a student walked into a classroom and fired a shot into the ceiling. and stepped away from the gun for a second and that's when the teacher tackled him and held him down until police arrived. no one was injured. and students were evacuated to a nearby church. police are investigating why the student brought the gun to school. >> bloomberg took away your salt, your soda and now wants your kids to wear uniform.
6:04 am
new york city mayor wants all schools in the city make their students wear uniforms. they proposed this in 2001 and abandoned it. >> rick: you like this idea. >> alisyn: i think for kids a lot of status bestowed on what they're wearing and how expensive. i like levelling the playing field. >> rick: you know that might cost millions of dollars and bankrupt the schools. >> alisyn: and many parents can pay for it, instead of school clothes, they should buy the uniforms. i need to run for mayor as soon as mayor bloomberg retires. >> clayton: let us know how you feel about that,, ff friends on twitter and let's bring in dick gordon, and has a perspective on the clintons and met them a time or two. nice to see you this morning, dick. because i want your perspective. bill clinton after that big speech at the convention heading to florida and ohio in the next week.
6:05 am
are his motives altruistic? or. >> i'm inspired by what alisyn says, she's going to run for mayor. >> alisyn: yes, yes. >> on this program on "fox & friends" monday morning at 6:15, my dog is going to announce his candidacy for president. and ilene and i have run a book, dubs runs for president. a preview he doesn't hire me, he hires mr. carlo rover for his campaign. >> alisyn: now for that. we're similarly qualified. the dog in me. >> rick: carl rover is good. karl rove coming up and the real thing. >> you can ask him about dubs, the candidate. >> rick: back to the dog that is bill clinton, is there
6:06 am
something to clinton going down there and campaigning for the president? >> i think what's motivating president clinton at this point is his desire to establish himself and his family, his wife, as solid democrats, as the reliable pillars of the democratic party, and so, that if-- so that if romney wins and obama loses he's not blamed and if obama wins, the-- his wife could run in 2016. >> alisyn: just one thing about hillary running in 2016. she has said she's not interested in doing that. what makes you think that that's still a possibility. >> every time she says she has an interest in running, she eventually runs. >> rick: . >> rick: so there's a track record. >> clayton: do you think the president and the former
6:07 am
president's ideas are in line. we saw a tale of two-- let me play the end of the sound bite if any of ours viewers didn't hear it. >> the republican argument against the president's reelection was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy, it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough so fire him and put it back in. >> he talked about leading from the middle. and president obama. >> right. >> clayton: talked maybe in different terms in his speech. when he's on the campaign trail are the messages in line, dick? >> i think there's a conflict between obama's essentially le leftist message and clinton's centrist message. you see the left wing approach and i was stunned that he did that because just two weeks ago gallup had a poll out that
6:08 am
said which describes your attitude best, government should leave me alone, or government should let me have? and it was 54 leave me alone, 35 let me have. now, leave me alone happily summarizes what the republicans were saying, and lend me a hand, summarizes what obama would say and yet, he charged right into it. from clinton's point of view, i think that that comment he made in his speech saying are we better off than we were four years ago, yes, is absolutely the line that's going to destroy the obama candidacy. already, romney has an ad out the swing states, we he says, this president can ask us to be patient, he can blame someone else, but he can't tell us we're better off than four years ago and i think that that speech by clinton, that message by president clinton is going to be become the fulcrum around
6:09 am
which the entire race balances, are we better off or not than four years ago and romney will win that overwhelmingly. >> a lot of comparisons have been made between the two presidents. if president obama were a clinton democrat wouldn't he have learned from the 2010 mid term and then gone to the center, changed his style of governance? >> yeah, just like bill clinton and i did after the '94 mid terms when he lost ko congress, after that he balanced the budget. when clinton said he did that by arithmetic and that the republican budget tax cuts defied that. clinton knows he's not telling the truth. the arithmetic was an eight-year balanced budget plan that would have balanced the budget by 2003. instead what happened, who added to that a capital gains tax cut, precisely what romney is proposing and because of that, the treasury was flooded
6:10 am
with billions of extra revenue and we balanced the budget in 1997, not 2003, because of tax cuts. >> alisyn: and dick, you know, it's interesting, even paul ryan noted on the campaign trail on friday, the difference between president obama's philosophy and style of leading and what happened the past four years was not bill clinton as democrat. bill clinton gave us welfare reform and worked with republicans to cut spending and get a good budget agreement in place. we don't have a bill clinton democrat, we have someone who went far to the left. now that president clinton in hindsight is so popular and people love his method of bipartisanship, i wonder why president obama isn't taking more of a page from that? >> well, i think because he didn't believe in it. i think because he believes that he was put in the presidency to move this country sharply to the left.
6:11 am
we have, in his defense, puts principles ahead of politics and the problem is it's the wrong president clinton it's not just that it's a bad ideology, it doesn't work. and more he's going to do of it. >> clayton: in the end, the president is the governed the full amount of americans, not just one side, by nature their' moderates. does moderation work. the rise of the tea party wants to cut the government spending and we even saw some moderate republican get thrown out of office. is president obama looking at it and saying i've got to go left, as far as as i can. first of all, obama has moved so far to the left that what used to be the center is now the right, and you have to sort of dial back the trillion dollars of extra spending before you can then get back to the status quo before and
6:12 am
do some compromising. i think it's important to understand that bill clinton was not a moderate. bill clinton combined the best of the left and right. and so, from the right he imposed requirements that obama is now revealing, from the left though he extended day care and tax credits to create jobs and earned income tax credit and food stamps and that stuff so that he made us way to go to work. it was not a question of splitting the difference, it was a question of what i call try angulation, which is taking the best from each party and combining it into a solution that works. interesting, we want to talk to you more about lots of top ex-and dick morris is going to stick around for this, the conventions are now over and president obama and mitt romney are gearing up for the first debate. what's going on behind the scenes this month as they prepare? >> and do you remember this iconic scene from the movie

6:18 am
grow. and i want to tell you all a cute story. and once bill clinton came in to me in the oval office, i mean, in the residence, rather, i was waiting for him and he walked in, would you like me to tell you the speech i just gave to florida, radio address, i said no, i'll read it in the paper. he said listen to this, sat me down, the weather you've experienced has been terrible, the hurricanes the fires, the tornados and every part of my being wants to help you. i know how devastating this has been, but i know how you think and i know how you vote. and i know that you think government would mess up you a one-car funeral. so, my friends in florida, my message to you tonight is goodbye and good luck. (laughter) >> and voters rethink that one? and that's the democratic characterization of what the republicans think. >> dave: the characterization, so you know you flipped a
6:19 am
little bit, but when it comes to these debates, specifics, everybody wanted specifics out of the president and out of candidate mitt romney in regard to how they're going to turn the economy around. is that when these two men should be preparing for this debate. have some specifics and what things are going to do to get the economy moving? >> yes, well, i think that romney has done that, i think that's part of the program. it's a very good one and i think he'll amplify that, and as the president's debates unfold. i think the nature thrust, i would expect of the romney campaign, is to say, okay, america, the democratic party has posed this question to you at their convention. are we better off now than we were four years ago? will more change be good enough? and i say no and they say yes, and you should vote accordingly. and i think that president clinton absolutely handed them a gift when he articulated that as the key question in the convention.

6:40 am
that president obama didn't need to hear specially he criticized president bush for not creating enough jobs, listen. >> in the past few weeks, president bush and members of his administration traveled the nation to celebrate the recent improved economics. i've been travelling, too, all over this large and diverse state in cities and suburbs, down state and upstate and i've heard from people saying it's way too early to claim victory when it comes to our economy after three dismal years of job loss we all welcome encouraging statistics, but for most americans the health of our economy is measured in a different and personal way. if i lose my job, where will i find one that pays as well and offers real benefits. >> here to react is fox news contributor and former advisor to president bush, karl rove. good to see you.
6:41 am
>> good to see you. >> dave: back in 2004, 310,000 jobs created and unemployment. how does he reconcile that given the circumstances we're facing now? >> well, he can't and the job report was abysmal. and we had 96,000 new jobs created in august, which is well below the level needed, if we were in a good economy, it's less than two-thirds of what we need just to stay even. in a bad economy like we've got. it's well below what we need in order to get the economy growing. the same time we added 96,000 jobs in august, they downgra downgraded june and july. and so we really only picked up roughly 45,000 new jobs in the month of september. we have 368,000 people become so discouraged that they dropped out of looking for work altogether. now, that's what dropped the unemployment rate to 8.1%, but
6:42 am
it means that only about 63.5% of the american people are working. and that's the lowest in 32 years. now, that's a number, but what it means is, to our economy, we want a larger-- we and the as many people working as we possibly can. if people, as many people working as possible, that means there's nor money that they're spending at the stores or purchases saving, able to provide for improvements to their homes and able to send to college. this is the lowest in 32 years. if the labor participation rate was the same as it was under bush, the unemployment rate would be 11.2%, but the difference is, we've got all of these people so discouraged they've dropped out of the work force altogether. remember, we've got 8.1% unemployment. president obama told us on january 9th of 2010-- 2009. that if we passed the stimulus bill, the 830 billion dollar surplus bill that today, the unemployment rate would be 5.6%. and if we did nothing, if we
6:43 am
did not pass this 832 billion dollar stimulus bill that's costing us over a trillion dollars when you add in the interest, if we did nothing, unemployment would be 6% and yet, it's 8.1% fas many people were in the work force as we had back then, it'd be 11.2. one out of every six americans is either out of work, working part-time, but looking for full-time work desperately because they want to put food on the table for their family or so discouraged they've dropped out of the work forges, every six americans. >> despite that, even your column inwall journal, how do the poll numbers. >> wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. i don't think they look decent. he's the incumbent president of the united states and locked in a dead even rate, and they found 30% of americans don't think they know enough about mitt romney to make a decision. >> more on that, karl. you're coming back on the other side of the break. talking about the poll numbers
6:44 am

because their enthusiasm was way down. and these are the kidscollege o and finding it hard to begin their careers and half of college graduates forced to move in back temporarily with their parents because they can't get started. there's an amazing poll out that i showed in my wall street journal piece, 40% are delaying big decisions and a quarter are deciding delaying getting married and over 1/5 are deciding to delay starting a family. because we've got a lousy economy and the president can't do better for them. >> alisyn: and karl, perhaps you have one of your white board, predicting how much money mitt romney is sitting on. the conventions are over and he has 100 million in the war chest to spend. what do you recommend he do with it. >> he's got more than 100 million dollar. august the third month in a
6:50 am
row. 100 million dollar. romney and rnc 180 million cash on hand and obama 160 for cash advantage of romney of 60 million dollars. i think at the end of august we're requesting to find out that rnc and romney have 225 to 230 and i think the cash advantage from 100, 150 million dollar. >> obama has raised more money, but spent is quicker. at the end of april, obama and the dnc had a 96 million dollar cash advantage over romney and the rnc. 61 million dollars at the end of may. 26 million dollars at the end saw, a 62 million dollar disadvantage to the republicans and it was because obama was spending at a much bigger clip. >> dave: man, you've got a lot of white boards. quickly, how do you feel about being a dog in dick morris' book, karl rover. >> karl rover, how would anybody take my name and turn
6:51 am
it into a dog's name? it's beyond me. >> alisyn: it's brilliant. karl rove, thank you. >> for christmas we're getting you a whole stack. running out of room there. >> alisyn: and an eraser, thanks, karl. >> coming up on the show, do you worry about how to pay for your children's college education. don't worry, our next guest says you can do both at the same time. yes, it's possible. stay tuned.

6:55 am
do. >> think about the sheer numbers, retirement is maybe 30 years long, college is four and there's no financial aid per se for retirement. there's a lot more flexibility when it comes to college, parents can save in a variety of ways, a tax plan offered at the state level and the gerber college plan, a sort of endowment life insurance policy and pay at the end of it. at the end of maturity. get up to 150,000 and that money can be for college or anything. >> all right, you say involve your kids in financial planning. >> so important. >> when and where do we start? >> i say the first year of rs as opposed to the first year of senior high school, going to an ivy league for $50,000 a year and you can't explain to the person why. it happened to me, i had my heart broken and went to penn state instead and ended up being a great opportunity and the parents coach me, that's the key word, you've got to coach your kids to realize that college planning is a family affair and it's expensive and we want you to go to college,, jr., but talk
6:56 am
about how much it costs and what your alternatives are. maybe you skip a year between high school and college so you can work to build, you know, saving to go to college. >> you say go easy on the loans. >> please. >> what do you mean by that? >> i see, hear too many horror stories of students who graduate with six-figure loans and i'm not talking, 20,000, 30,000, that's a safe area, but $100,000 for a degree in english and that's risky in this economy and what you want to do, when you're considering loans, consider public loans first and federal loans first and then private loans and then also, the rule of thumb is whatever you're going to take out. make sure it's below what the first year anticipated salary would be. >> anticipated $45,000 a year salary, try not to borrow more than 45,000. >> and you say to consider cooper union, college of ozarks, missouri and many others, thank you so much for joining us this morning, great tips. >> my pleasure. >> good luck. >> more "fox & friends" in
